Norwegian Armed Forces Adopt FN MINIMI Machine Gun
The Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) confirmed their decision last November, putting an end to a yearlong competition.
The Global Armored and Counter IED Vehicles Market 2014-2024
The contract includes the manufacture and delivery of 1,900 MINIMI(tm) 5.56 machine guns together with spare parts and accessories up to the end of 2012. The contract also includes optional quantities and additional services to be provided by FN Herstal to the NDLO over a 15-year period.
The MINIMI(tm) 5.56 light machine gun is the newest addition in line with the FN MAG(tm) medium machine gun and the FN M2HB-QCB heavy machine gun already in use by the Norwegian army.
